Japanese Covered Bridge - Review
Emblematic of Hoi An, construction of this bridge commenced in the Year of Monkey and finished in the year of the Dog and hence the sculptures of the monkey and the dog at the end of the bridge. Over the centuries the ornamentation has remained relatively faithful to the original understated Japanese design. The French flattened out the roadway for their motor vehicles, but the original arched shape was restored in 1986.

Japanese Covered Bridge, Hoi An Reviews
The bridge looks nice but to go in you have to pay a ticket but honestly it is not worth it. Just stay outside and take a couple of photos and move on. That is, provided you can actually take a decent photo without too many tourists in it, as this place can get very crowded, especially in the evening.
Hoian is doing pretty well to attract more and more tourists recent years. Organized activities and quality hospitality with stabilize their tourism business, one heritage is the main reasons to come here.
It's nice but a bit too crowded to enjoy or get nice photos. It's lit up quite nicely at night. It's a bit silly to have a ticket required as you need to cross it to get to the other side of the river so we ended up ignoring the ticket man a few times as we just wanted to go over the bridge. The people that set up stands at the entrance to the bridge are super inconsiderate for anyone wanting a nice photo unfortunately. You'll need Photoshop if you want a good photo. The temple inside isn't too exciting.
My fisrt impression: too many people visiting this place making it hot and annoyed. If you want to have a nice photo, you should only come early in the morning. Trust me, you should not come in the evening for photos. The second impression: buying ticket to cross the distance of 10 metres. Hmm, it makes sense if they block the bridge at the begining, rather than just only asking foreigners and tourists (those "accidentally" stepping on the bridge) for tickets. I see many local people passing through easily without being asked so what is the difference. Overall, this bridge is special because it is the only one to have a temple on it as well as the historical story. Taking photos from the outside is much better, nothing interesting inside.
If it's the bridge you mean, Hoi An is worth it just to see this. A gem of culture fusion, local, Chinese and Japanese. It's also a perfect starting point to take in the entire old part. A great monument reflecting Hoi An's past, now fueling its present.
