Pickled Daikon like you might get at a sushi place?

Not sure what the appropriate board is for this request but here goes:

I was at a local hibachi/sushi/chinese restaurant a few weeks back. I ordered a sashimi app that consisted of pieces of fluke topped with roe and cilantro. It was served with a spicy ponzu sauce and garnished with pickled daikon and carrots. I love those little pickled veggies, specially the yellow daikon. Its not pickled in a vinegar, at least thats my thought from its taste. Its umami palooza. But I am stumped as to how to procure.

Heres the thing, I have done the search, nothing turned up. I have searched for recipes but they all start off with 'leave the radish out in the sun for a few days until it is limp and wrinkled'--- um, no.

If anyone knows of a source for this wonderful little snack or a recipe that doesn't require sunning it.
