The only source I know of is trial & error.
Edo's provide most of their lift from the top set of bridle lines, and a
little pull on the next one or two sets. Try flying the Edo off the top
set leaving the other sets slack. The kite will not gain much altitude
but it will get off the ground; slowly pull in the bottom sets until a
good angle is obtained. Or the Edo starts rocking from side to side.
That's toooooo much.
The current trend in Japan is short bridle lines. I prefer longer lines
for the aesthetics. Longer lines can also help stabilize a higher aspect
Edo. Longer bridle lines can be up to 30 times the length of the kite.
Some Japanese at Tulsa Nat'ls had a 6' Edo flying 200' out and flying
only on the bridle lines. It was a little breezy that day.
