city, Aichi ken (prefecture), Honshu, Japan, in the middle of the Hekkai Terrace. Irrigation was introduced into the area in the late 19th century, permitting cultivation of two crops of rice and wheat annually. In 1891 the Anjō station on the railroad between Tokyo and Kōbe was opened, and the new town developed around it. With far-sighted planning and the early establishment of agricultural cooperatives, Anjō became a model farm community. Its diversified farming of rice, wheat, poultry, and cattle lent it the name Little Denmark of Japan. After 1960 industrialization increased rapidly, and farming became secondary to a large textile factory and several smaller plants making machinery and metal products. Pop. (2005) 170,250.
