Rexroth Yosano Akiko error

It is my belief that if the original Japanese version had been included, a Japanese proof-reader would have caught this error. in seeing the obvious : 夕日の岡に is yūhi no oka ni. And why the silly initial cap's in the roumaji transcription?

But will it be corrected in the Kindle edition ?

The W.S. Merwin follows the available editions of Buson haikushuu fairly closely ... but with no Japanese other than more faithful transcriptions of the kanji and kana into roumaji.
