In a station square, avoidance behavior happens frequently. In order to create a more comfortable and safe walking space, it is necessary to consider people-to-people avoidance behavior and pedestrian personal space. In this research, we analyzed avoidance behavior by pedestrian pathways and discussed pedestrian personal space through the relative positions of two pedestrians in avoidance behavior. The characteristics of pedestrian avoidance behavior and personal spacewere as follows:<br>1. Pedestrian avoidance behavior has significant differences between moving in the opposite direction and in the same direction.<br>2. The distance of avoidance behavior in the morning is the least.<br>3. Under free walking conditions, the locus of the object's relative position can be considered as the boundary of the subject's personal space.<br>4. Reduce avoidance behavior: a. Give enough spacefor pathways of pedestrians. b. Consider the situation of users.
