Lady Yodo moved to Osaka Castle and with her son Hideyori, plotted the restoration of the Toyotomi clan.
She was also sometimes considered an obnoxious woman who bewitched Toyotomi Hideyoshi, took over the rightful place of Toyotomi Hideyoshi's wife, and tried to manipulate the Toyotomi clan for her gains, indirectly leading to its demise.
As Lady Yodo—being the guardian of the young Toyotomi Hideyori—was the virtual ruler of the Osaka Castle and the Toyotomi clan, she having a bad image would have helped justify Tokugawa's military actions against Osaka.

The Toyotomi progress was almost leisurely, especially since the only real Shimazu resistance would come at the Sendai River on 6 June, and this was in essence a show of simple defiance by the proud Shimazu warriors.

All of these tend to distract us from a clear and well-rounded picture of Toyotomi Hideyoshi the man. Hideyoshi is often portrayed as a hero, a shining figure and the progenitor of a golden age.
