I've got a recipe for the dressing (Awaze-Zu) which would call for the following ingredients:
1/2 cup rice vinegar
1/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons mirin
2 tablespoon sake
1 tablespoon salt
Heat and stir until the sugar is dissolved.
As discussed above, the type of rice is important, as well as cooking it properly. It is important to add only as much dressing to the rice as it can absorb.
Refrigerate leftover dressing.
If you're interested in making your own sushi, you might want to browse through some books for specific instructions.
