Measure the rice and place it in a fine-holed colander or strainer. Rinse the rice under cold running water until the water runs clear.
Drain well, and transfer to a heavy saucepan. Add 2 1/2 cups fresh cold water. Cover and soak for 30 minutes before turning on heat.
Bring rice to a boil, reduce heat to low, cover and cook until water is absorbed and rice is just tender, about 15 minutes.
While rice cooks, combine the vinegar, sugar and salt in a small saucepan. Heat until sugar dissolved. Allow to cool.
Remove the rice from heat and let stand, covered, for 15 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl and toss with vinegar mixture and sesame seeds while still warm.
Cover rice with a clean, damp towl and cool completely at room temperature. The rice should be used within several hours to maintain moisture and tenderness.
