There is an impressive legendary story about the bridge. In the 17th century, also the time it was built, Hoi An ancient town is a thriving international port. The town attracts thousands of tradesmen from surrounding areas, including the Japanese. Then they built the bridge with an aim to keep the land safe and sound.

The attraction played a role as a sword plunging into a monster called Mamazu, which was lying deep underground of India, Vietnam, and Japan. Before that time, whenever the monster flapped its tail, an earthquake happened, scaring all the locals there. Nowadays, there is no other Japanese construction left in Hoi An apart from The Japanese Covered Bridge.
