In this paper, a land-use simulation model based on the concept of bid price is proposed. This model has been developed with the aim of applying it to an area where land use is complex and land prices play an important role in the formation of land use, as happens in urban areas in Japan. The future land-use pattern is estimated by simulating a bidding competition among land-use activities in each hypothetical lot. The model is applied to the Osaka Prefectural Area and its validity is examined.
