Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer until done. Remove rice from heat and place in bowl. Add sugar and rice wine vinegar, toss to combine and cool.
  2. Combine soy, wasabi & rice wine vinegar in a separate bowl.

Slice avocado in half, remove seed and skin and slice crosswise 1/8 inch thick. Place a slice of avocado on the rice. Slice crab leg diagonally 1/4 inch thick. Place crab slice on top of avocado.
