The first sushi involved pressing raw fish between a mixture of rice and salt. This pickling process took about two months, and afterward the rice was simply thrown out. It wasn't until the 15th century that rice became an integral part of the dish because it was just too valuable to waste.
But sushi as we know it today didn't truly arrive until 1824, when Yohei Hanaya started selling raw slices of seafood on beds of rice in his Edo food stall. The trend caught on, and soon stalls all over Edo (which would eventually become Tokyo) were selling sushi.
It was only after World War II that the modern sushi boom hit a snag. Banned by the Allies due to sanitary concerns, the stalls started to disappear, eventually giving way to the counter-style sushi restaurants we see today.
