Owner description: A local favorite, construction on this covered bridge began in the Year of the Monkey (1593) and was finished in the Year of the Dog (1595), hence the monkey and dog sculptures at either end.

“Small but pretty”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

It doesn't take a long time to walk through and admire, but it's a pretty bridge and the history is interesting to read. Good photo opportunity too.

A charming old bridge! But at night you will enjoy it better, along with the lights around the river and in every bar along it !!

“Charming - small - great for photos”
Reviewed September 17, 2013

As one of the most notable landmarks in Hoi An, the Japanese Bridge is not to be missed. If you're coming to town, no doubt- you will probably stumble upon this bridge as its centrally located in the Old Town.

It's old, it's tiny, but it's definitely worth walking across and taking a photo in front of, just so you can say you saw it.

It's typically busy with people going in and out, as well as tour groups stopping there and listening to its history from their tour guide. It takes away some of the appeal, but it's really not that bad.
