Closest thing I could find after travelling through Japan

I love this luxurious rice. I make it in my Instant Pot (using a modified Alton Brown's Sushi Rice recipe) and it comes out amazing every time. It aint cheap but it is delicious and reminds me of the rice The Hubs and I enjoyed in Japan two years ago.
2 cups sushi or short grain rice
2 cups water, plus extra for rinsing rice
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon kosher salt
Rinse the rice with water, pour off and repeat 2 to 3 times or until the water runs clear.
Spray the inner pot with cooking spray, then dump the wet rice and 2 cups of water into the pot, seal the lid, and select the rice button.
Once done, remove the pot from the heat and let stand, covered, for 10 minutes.
Combine the rice vinegar, sugar and salt in a small bowl and heat in the microwave on high for 30 to 45 seconds. Transfer the rice into a large wooden or glass mixing bowl and add the vinegar mixture. Fold thoroughly to combine and coat each grain of rice with the mixture. Allow to cool to room temperature before using to make sushi or sashimi.
