A windmill rises against the evening sky. This windmill is the very symbol of DENPARK, and has a distinctive Danish design consisting of outer walls that gradually widen toward the bottom, and an onion-shaped top. The reason why such an iconic image of Europe is to be found here in Anjo is that Anjo City was once called the "Japanese Denmark" by way of comparison with the country which has what is perhaps the world's most advanced agricultural industry. The name DENPARK has the same connection behind it. Hidden in this large park, where visitors come to admire seasonal plants and flowers, are ties which connect these two distant lands.
※ Views like the one shown in the photo can only be seen under certain conditions (time of day, weather etc.).
The park is open from 9:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. (4:30 p.m. in winter), with last admissions 30 minutes before closing time, and is closed every Tuesday. Please check the website regarding opening hours, since the park occasionally opens earlier or closes later than the regular time because of special events. The website also has information about highlights such as seasonal flowers and events, and it's a good idea to check these out too before setting out.
