Emperor didn't live there. Only the bakufu (tent government) did.
It was the government city, but it was not "a capital". The Capital
of Japan was Heian-kyo from 794 until 1868. Then it moved to Edo
during the Meiji Restoration. Kyoto-ites have never truly forgiven
the Emperor this mistake... ;)

the beginning of Japanese history (and before, if you believe the
