This manuscript analyses spatial movements of people living in ancient Kyoto, Heian-kyo based on various literature. For Heian-kyo, although the geometric configuration of roads and the block size are well known, living and working locations of common and noble class people and their spatial movements have not been investigated. The study first estimates the land use and population densities for every block focusing on the middle period of Heian. Then, based on the estimated nighttime and daytime population, OD volume is obtained using Entropy method and finally link volumes are estimated using the Dial's algorithm. Furthermore, movements of noble class people on New Year's Day in year of 1027 is recaptured based on Shoyuki, diary of Fujiwara no Sanesuke.
