Hoi An, Vietnam was a major trading port in the 17th century. The Japanese Bridge, also locally referred to as the Cau Pagoda, was built with help from a Japanese businessman. Today it remains a symbol of the influence the Japanese had in Vietnam back then. The bridge was originally constructed as a symbolic gesture of peace to bring together the Japanese community with the Chinese quarter that were divided by a small stream. In addition there’s a legend about the bridge and a monster called Namazu, a Japanese mythological creature who can cause earthquakes and floods. Hoi An is today an interesting town not far from the beaches and modern city life of Da Nang. The town offers a great assortment of craft, clothing and fashion accessory shops.
