      Greetings to all, and nihao from a new person on the list!
      Excuse, please, my name...it's my all purpose online identity, and I write fanfics under it.
      Not to beat the expiring horse, but I concur that sushi is not really what we might call period. As I understand it, originally, fish were placed in between layers of rice for the purpose of pickling. Once the fish was pickled, the rice was discarded. (I can't imagine the rice would have been very tasty after that, anyway.) Sometime in early Edo period, someone(s) had the bright idea of not tossing the rice, or of serving the rice flavored with the same pickling solution they used on the fish.
      Hence, sushi.
      Onigiri (rice balls), *are* period. Hmm...need to get some molds for that, make it easier...hopefully I'm going to Philly later in the year...and there's a Chinatown there...hmmmm...
      Some food info for the Heian period can be found at...http://www.taleofmurasaki.com/foodspage.htm
      Purrs!

I believe that it was originally done quite late in period as a preservative for fish...vinegared rice and fish were pressed into a mold. Then, either VERY late period/early out of period, chirazush or scattered sushi came into being.

      You might try asking Lady Solveig about this...I think she has some actual references.
