Anji Country (simplified Chinese: 安吉县; traditional Chinese: 安吉縣; pinyin: Ānjí Xiàn) is a county in the prefecture-level city of Huzhou in northwestern Zhejiang province, China. The county spans an area of 1,886 square kilometers, with a population of 461,800 as of the end of 2013. Located within the Yangtze River Delta, Anji County is a short distance from Shanghai, Hangzhou, and Nanjing.

Anji County is known for its lush natural environment, with over 70% of the county's area covered in forest and other vegetation. In particular, Anji County is known for its bamboo production. The county has 60,000 hectares (150,000 acres) of bamboo groves containing over 40 different species of bamboo.


The Shangmakan site, a paleolithic archeological site, is located within present-day Anji County.

Anji County was established in 185 CE.

During the 1990s, it took more than two hours to travel to Hangzhou by bus. Poor transportation isolated Anji from the rest of Zhejiang Province, and for many years its economy remained underdeveloped. From 1997 to 2000, highways were built to Hangzhou and Huzhou, and from 2000 to 2002, highways connecting to National Highway G318 were constructed. The provincial highways within its boundary were also widened. Now the highway system traversing the entire boundary has been completed, and it takes less than three hours to reach Shanghai, Nanjing , or Suzhou, and less than one hour to get to Hangzhou and Huzhou.
