These 'Star Wars' vegetable carvings are too amazing to eat

For the past 10 years, sushi chef Okitsugu Kado has been carving vegetables into life-like slices of a galaxy far, far, away for his patrons. Using the Force to manipulate daikon, sweet potatoes and carrots, he's created more than 90 "Star Wars" figures and scenic displays for guests at his Osaka, Japan, restaurant Oki's Sushi Bistro to marvel at and devour.

Oki's practice belongs to the traditional Japanese art of mukimono: decorative food garnishing. As reported by Nerdist, Oki originally began making these figurines and elaborate scenes to feed and contribute to his weekly Jedi Order meetings with his "Star Wars" community, the Jedi Order of Japan.

Check out just some of Oki's "Star Wars" creations below and on his blog and Facebook page.

Photos of his delicious recreations were shared originally by Kotaku.
