Combine the rice vinegar, sugar, salt and mirin in a 1 to 1 1/2 qt enameled
or stainless steel saucepan. Bring to a boil uncovered and stir in the soy

rice in a 1 1/2 to 2 qt stainless steel or enameled saucepan and let soak
for 30 minutes. Then add the square of kombu and bring to a boil over high

or tray. Pour on the vinegar dressing and mix thoroughly with a fork. The
rice is ready to use when it has cooled to room temperature. Or it may be
covered and left at room temperature as long as 5 hours before serving.
