Pagoda Bridge, located adjacent to Nguyen Thi Minh Khai Street and Tran Phu Street - Hoi An, also known as the Japanese Bridge, is a work built by Japanese merchants who came to Hoi An to trade in the early seventeenth century.  Experiencing the ups and downs of time, the building still retains great values ​​of architecture, culture and history, showing the connection between Vietnamese-Japanese-Chinese communities at the ancient trading port of Hoi An. It is indeed an invaluable asset to generations of Hoi An people and has been officially chosen as the symbol of the city.
The bridge has a roof with unique architecture, in the middle is a rainbow-style passageway, and on both sides, there are narrow corridors, used as a place for trade and relaxation. The main site of the pagoda faces the poetic Hoai River. Though it is called the pagoda, residents here worship the Bac De god Tran Vo - the god associated with the water treatment function, bringing a peaceful life with favorable rain and wind for the residents.

The Pagoda Brige is made of wood, painted in red and carved with elaborate and harmonious motifs. The two ends of the bridge have two pairs of wooden statues, one end is a dog statue, and the other is a monkey statue with many unique interpretations by local residents. In 1719, on a weekly tour to Hoi An, Lord Nguyen Phuc Chu bestowed three words "Lai Vien Kieu" with the meaning of welcoming guests from afar, which is still solemnly placed at the entrance of the temple today.
Pagoda Bridge was recognized as a national historical-cultural relic in 1990. Currently, Pagoda Bridge is an indispensable attraction for any visitor when coming to Hoi An ancient town. Its image was also selected to be printed on the VND 20,000 banknote issued by the State Bank of Vietnam in 2006.
