As main transportation on Miyajima is your foot, bringing comfortable shoes
is key of your enjoyable stay.
Roads are not fully paved as nature remains untouched at some area.
There are supermarkets, drugstores and vending machines on Miyajima but there is NO convenience store and the most of stores closed around 5PM. So be prepared.
Levels of tide shows you different view of Itsukushima shrine and Otorii,
great red gate.
At high tide, the shrine would be more beautiful and at low tide you can walk to Otorii gate.
You can get tide information at the pier.
There are 2 shipping companies at the pier. JR ship goes to close to Otorii, great red gate, on the way coming to the island. You can get good view/picture of the gate from sea. Then on the way back, take other ship, Matsudai for different view of Setonaikai sea.
