  Japanese covered bridge
by balhannah

The Japanese Covered Bridge has been officially selected to be the symbol of Hoi An.

Constructed in the middle of the 16th century by Japanese merchants in Hoi An, the bridge has two entrances that are guarded by a pair of monkeys on one side and a pair of dogs on the other.
It has a patterned roof, has been restored many times, losing its original Japanese design.

According to legend, these once lived an enormous monster called Cu whose head was in India, its tail in Japan and its body in Vietnam. Whenever the monster moved, terrible disaster such as floods and earthquake befell these places.

Address: Conecting Tran Phu St. with Nguyen Thi Minh Khai S
