Denpark Anjo

デンパーク, 安城

Listen to the muzak at Denpark

Japan makes a specialty of country-related theme parks. Huis ten Bosch is the most famous example in Nagasaki, but there is also a Spain Mura near Ise Shima in Mie and a Villaggio Italia in Nagoya.


Denpark, Anjo

Anjo, a small, quiet town between Nagoya and Toyohashi has Denpark - a compact theme park based on the architectural and agricultural charms of Denmark.

Denpark, Anjo

From the piped Euromuzak to the manicured lawns, Denpark does its best to recreate a piece of faux-Denmark in deepest Aichi. There's a windmill, various reconstructions of Danish houses, Carlsberg beer on tap and plenty of cheese and butter in the shops.

There's a toy train to whisk the kids around the park's pleasant gardens and street performers put on shows in "Floral Place" - a huge glass house with restaurants and shops.
