Iconic bridge in hội an

It’s the pride of the town. I have to admit I imagined it would be bigger. There are two monkey statues at the entrance to which the locals offer gifts. You have to pay to cross the bridge but the price includes access to other temples in Hội An. The ticket office is right in front of the bridge.

Symbol of hội an

The Japanese Covered Bridge was built in 1593 by Japanese merchants to unite the Japanese district to the west with the Chinese one to the east. It currently connects Trần Phú and Nguyễn Thị Minh Khai streets.

It's built of wood and stone and rests on arches set over a tributary of the Thu Bồn River. The roof is decorated with elaborate wood and stone carvings and the interior is also wood and decorated with lanterns, a local handicraft specialty. At the entrance to the bridge are the "gatekeepers" and statues of dogs and monkeys. There is also a temple inside. As a bit of trivia, the bridge appears on the 20,000 Dong note.

The most important monument in hội an

The Japanese Covered Bridge is the most important monument in the city of Hội An. It's a pagoda-style temple built in 1593 and, aside from its religious purpose, it also connects the Chinese and Japanese neighborhoods in the city. The bridge is covered and there’s a small pagoda which you can access at the center of the bridge and altars to various deities.

If you head to Chinatown, you'll find very old Chinese homes which you can visit and embroidery shops selling the most beautiful tablecloths and silk bedspreads. The furniture in the traditional homes is a work of art itself. It really gives you an idea of the wealth, influence, and refinement of the Chinese traders of the era.

Hoi an was a major asian trading port...

Hoi An was a major Asian trading port in ancient times. In the late sixteenth century, the Nguyen lords who ruled South Vietnam invited Japanese and Chinese traders to settle in Hoi An, with the aim of increasing the business of the port city. The Japanese Covered Bridge at the end of Tran Phu Street. Its origin goes back to 1590 and legend has it that the bridge was built in the heart of a huge underground monster called Cu, whose head was in India, Vietnam body and tail in Japan and every time he moved his tail terrible earthquakes in Japan triggered, killing him. On one side of the bridge there is a small Taoist temple was built by the people of Hoi An to pray for the soul of the monster and take pity on him. Actually was built to communicate the Japanese trading settlement neighborhood with Chinese. In Taoist temple entrance there hung an inscription that says "Bridge for pedestrians coming from afar", the name given to the bridge in 1719. However, knowing the bridge has continued to this day as Japanese Covered Bridge. It is one of the most important historical remains Japan's presence in Vietnam.

Hoi An fue uno de los principales puertos comerciales de Asia en la antigüedad. A finales del siglo XVI, los Señores Nguyen que gobernaban en Vietnam del Sur invitaron a comerciantes japoneses y chinos a asentarse en Hoi An, con el objetivo de aumentar la actividad comercial de la ciudad portuaria.

El Puente Cubierto Japonés se encuentra al final de la calle Tran Phu. Su origen se remota a 1590 y cuenta la leyenda que se construyó el puente en el corazón de un enorme monstruo subterráneo llamado Cu, que tenía la cabeza en la India, el cuerpo en Vietnam y la cola en Japón y cada vez que se movía su cola desencadenaba terribles terremotos en Japón, causándole la muerte. En un lado del puente hay un pequeño templo taoísta que fue construido por los habitantes de Hoi An para rezar por el alma del monstruo y apiadarse de él.

En realidad se construyó para poder comunicar el barrio de asentamiento comercial japonés con el chino. En la entrada del templo taoísta hay colgada una inscripción que dice "Puente para los transeúntes que llegan de lejos", nombre que se le dio al puente en 1719. Sin embargo, el puente ha seguido conociéndose hasta nuestros días como Puente Cubierto Japonés.

Es uno de los restos históricos más importantes de la presencia de Japón en Vietnam.

In the small town of Hoi An, if you visit the historic town encontrars one of the most curious attractions to visit: The japanese puento covered. It is a relic of the sixteenth century, now a UNESCO heritage site which was created to unite the Chinatown neighborhood of Japanese traders, centuries ago. During the day it is nice and you can go through, but when has special photographic interest is falling sunlight. With night lights around the bridge and acquires a beautiful and pictorial tone. Cuesta enter but if you cross without stopping much, you can ignore the entrance, which in addition gives us access to several other parts of the old town.

Un puente con mucha historia

En la pequeña ciudad de Hoi An, si visitas el casco histórico encontrarás una de las atracciones más curiosas para visitar: El puento cubierto japonés. Se trata de una reliquia del siglo XVI, actualmente patrimonio de la UNESCO que fue creado para unir el barrio chino del barrio de comerciantes japoneses, siglos atrás. Durante el día es bonito y se puede atravesar, pero cuando cobra especial interés fotográfico es al caer la luz del sol. Con la noche todo el puente se ilumina y adquiere un tono muy bonito y pictórico.

Cuesta entrar pero si se atraviesa sin detenerse mucho, se puede obviar la entrada, que además nos da acceso a varios otros puntos del casco antiguo.

Located in the economic and tourist heart of the charming town of Hoi Anh, the Japanese Covered Bridge is one of the main attractions. Built in 1593, it was used at the time to allow the passage between different neighborhoods, one Chinese and the other Japanese. Despite the many centuries that have passed, the bridge is still in relatively good condition. Made of wood and stone, it is very pretty, especially at dusk when soft lights come surround its beautiful pink color.

Implanté en plein cœur économique et touriste de la charmante petite ville de Hoi Anh, le pont couvert japonais en est l'un des principaux centres d'intérêt. Bâti au 1593, il servait à l'époque à permettre le passage entre les différents quartiers de la ville, l'un chinois et l'autre japonais. Malgré les nombreux siècles qui ont passé, le pont est encore relativement en bon état. Fait de bois et de pierre, il est très joli, particulièrement à la tombée du jour quand les douces lumières viennent entourer sa belle couleur rose.

This bridge is worth a look

Built in Japantown, this bridge is unique. The Japanese Bridge is one of the main attractions of Hoi An, and that's understandable. It is covered, and even contains two rooms.

Un ponton lui fait face et offre un beau point de vue pour faire les photos.
