At high-class sushi restaurants here in Japan, the sushi chef will add wasabi himself. If there isn't any on the piece when you get it, you don't add any to it. There's also a lot of varieties of sushi that aren't supposed to take soy sauce. There are some that are meant to be dipped in sesame-sauce, others in sweet sauce, etc.
Mind you, this is etiquette at high-class sushi restaurants. Also, just as with other countries, many Japanese don't know proper etiquette, either, and you'll see them adding wasabi or using soy sauce when they aren't supposed to be.
California Rolls have only recently been introduced to Japan. I haven't been to a restaurant that serves any yet, so I can't say what the proper way to eat it would be.

I've enjoyed eating sushi for years, I don't normally dip sushi in soy sauce(save every blue moon) I tend to just eat it with wasabi and the pickled ginger. o(^-^)o

Also, has anyone tried "Alberta Rolls?" I don't know if they go by other names elsewhere in the world, but it's basically a California Roll with cold cooked beef in the rice instead of seafood.
It makes me want to try it with several other meats as well.
