Table of Contents
Anjo Industrial Culture Park Denpark (hereafter referred to as Denpark) is a flower and green theme park located in Anjo City, Aichi Prefecture. In addition to enjoying 300,000 seasonal flowers of about 3,300 species throughout the year, you can also enjoy various ways such as "events", "experiences", "gourmet", and "shopping".
This time, we will introduce the highlights of Denpark!
What kind of place is Denpark?
Denpark is a park located in Anjo City, which is roughly in the center of Aichi Prefecture. The origin of the name comes from the history of Anjo City, which was once called "Denmark Japan". Anjo City is a town that has become a model for agricultural management nationwide. Based on that history, Denpark proposes a lifestyle with flowers, in harmony with nature.
In addition to flowers that can be enjoyed all year round, there are also a 19-meter-tall Danish windmill, a large flower greenhouse called "Floral Place" where the flower show is changed five times a year, goods of the popular Danish character "Rasmus Klump", and goods from Denmark. It is full of highlights, such as shopping for miscellaneous goods full of Scandinavian taste!
Gourmet food using local ingredients, restaurants serving local cuisine, sausages and gelato that can be eaten in the park are also popular.

The cityscape of Denmark was reproduced
"Flower Greenhouse Floral Place"
The first place we visited was the “Flower Greenhouse Floral Place”, which was just reopened on March 14, 2020. Inside the greenhouse decorated with beautiful flowers, you will find a colorful streetscape inspired by Denmark. Each of them is a symbol tower as a sacred place for lovers, a general store, a cafe, and an experience workshop.
When you enter, you will be greeted by colorful and cute buildings.
At the large flower greenhouse Floral Place, a seasonally themed flower show is held. There are also exhibits of rare plants, including flowers that can only be seen in Denpark.
In the center, there was also a statue of "The Little Mermaid" by the fairy tale writer Andersen, which seems to be Danish.
This is a new symbolic tower "Tower of Happiness lykke" as a holy place for lovers. The observation deck offers a panoramic view of the flower show and the Danish cityscape.
Also, if you throw a coin into the “Fountain of Happiness” on the first floor of the tower, your wish may come true! ?
Krone coins are sold at the experience workshop GodDag.
Experience Workshop GodDag
Based on the concept of "providing a happy time to make treasures", there are plenty of handmade experiences for adult women, such as wreaths, botanical gel candles, and jewel soaps that look like jewels.
In addition, at "General Store Smuk", you can purchase cute Scandinavian-related stuffed animals, stationery, imported sweets and tableware, fashion items, and more.

A different garden style for each area!
At Den Park, the flowers are replanted five times a year in April, June, September, November, and March, so you can enjoy colorful flower beds all year round.
More than 20 different gardens are scattered around. There are English gardens, border gardens, and collection gardens, each with a different style.
Colorful flower bed "Fantasy Garden"
"Fantasy Garden" is based on the world of Andersen's fairy tales, centering on antique-style flower clocks.
The flower clocks are placed on a slope so that they can be seen from anywhere in the garden. The atmosphere changes dramatically depending on the season.
English Garden "Secret Garden"
