A classic Japanese dish called sushi consists of vinegared rice (sushi-meshi) combined with various toppings (net), usually with some added sugar and salt, most commonly raw fish and vegetables. The best sushi-making techniques and presentation concepts start with sushi rice, commonly known as shari or sumeshi. [1]

Hanaya Yohei nigiri sushi features seafood served on hand-pressed vinegared rice. Around 1824, Edo (1603-1867) provided fast food for the chnin order. [2][3][4]

Medium-grain white rice is the typical ingredient, but rice or short-grain rice can also be used for making sushi. Wasabi, soy sauce and gari are often added to this dish. Popular ingredients for this dish include takuan, or radish.

Sometimes it is mistaken for sushi.
