In Japanese cuisine, sushi is vinegared rice topped with other ingredients, especially fish.  Sliced raw fish alone is called sashimi, as distinct from sushi. Combined with hand-formed clumps of rice it is called nigirizushi. Sushi items served rolled inside or around nori is makizushi, toppings stuffed into a small pouch of fried tofu is inarizushi; and toppings served scattered over a bowl of sushi rice called chirashi-zushi.
