Fixing The Flashing?

As we get closer to adding the final coat of "shikkui" and "tosashikkui" lime plasters on the exterior walls, we are looking at "fixing" some things that are believed to have been done wrong the first time around. One of these things is the flashing around the base of Square One. Since there has been a lot of the earth plaster breaking off on the area where the flashing is under the plaster, it has been determined that the flashing is the problem. However, Sakai-san came by the house yesterday and said if that is the case, why is the same problem happening above the electrical box (see below pictures) where there is no flashing. A very good point by the main builder. I've forwarded these pictures on to the three people who were here last weekend for their thoughts....
