The square-sailed TOSA dako is similar to the Franklin kite, the Delta or HATA. It could be the delta's true ancestor. It is popular for the painting on the kite to be that of the family crest. The TOSA kite takes its name from the vast bay of Tosa on the south side of Shikoku island Japan, within the Kochi prefecture. A detailed description about TOSA Dako with beautiful pictures can be seen on Kite Lines Spring-Summer 1997, Vol.12, No.3. by Pierre Fabre.
