Japanese covered bridge - Symbol of Hoi An
Hoi An, Quảng Nam
The Japanese covered bridge is one of the most famous tourist attraction in the beautiful city of Hoi An. The bridge is connecting Tran Phu St with Nguyen Thi Minh Khai St, the Japanese Covered bridge was built in the sixteenth century by the Japanese community of Hoi An, in order to create a link with the Chinese quarters across the stream.
Japanese bridges long have a reputation for their pure beauty of being graceful curves and the inspiration from Zen spirit. It’s no doubt that the most famous bridge of this kind in Vietnam is the one in Hoi An – the historic riverside town in the Central Part. This nearly-20m bridge connects the 2 major streets of Hoi An’s Old Quarter: Nguyen Thi Minh Khai St. and Tran Phu St., looking over the peaceful Thu Bon River.
Admission is free and tourists staying in the town may pass through this bridge few times a day. Hiring a bike to tour around is highly recommended, since the town is so small and there’s no need to worry about the traffic.
