The stability of a Toyotomi dynasty after Hideyoshi's death was put in doubt with the death of his only son Tsurumatsu in September 1591.
By June 1598, the campaign was stalled and reduced to approximately 60,000 warriors under the Shimazu clan commanders, Shimazu Yoshihiro and his son Tadatsune.

The Battle of Sekigahara or popularly known as the Realm Divide was a decisive battle on September 15, 1600 (on the ancient Chinese calendar, October 21 on the modern calendar) that cleared the path to the Shogunate for Tokugawa Ieyasu.
Even though Toyotomi Hideyoshi unified Japan and consolidated his power, his ill-fated invasion of Korea significantly weakened the Toyotomi clan's power as well as the loyalists that continued to serve and support the Toyotomi clan after Hideyoshi's death.
For example, the Mori clan, which was displaced from its home provinces to Chōshū-han, remained angry toward the Tokugawa shogunate, because the clan never actually took part in the battle.

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.

Though the Toyotomi Clan did not intend this, Ieyasu saw this as a curse of magic that wished the fall of the Tokugawa clan and challenged the Toyotomi Clan formally.

Because Arima surrendered before any great casualties at Toyotomi's side were tabulated, he was given leniency, and his men were incorporated into Toyotomi's joint army, the Arima clan was to be bound by all the duties as Toyotomi's vassal.
Toyotomi kept an eye on this area because of obvious reasons; if the local warlords got a busy port, they'd get rich, and they'd stock ammo, and they'd turn against him.
He pledged allegiance to Toyotomi's rule and was assigned to captainhood under the command of General Konishi Yukinaga, whom Goto followed across the waterway to invade Korea in 1892.

 The People of the Unicorn Clan
This section gives an overview of the population of the clan, as well as some background on the clans families and most prominent figures.
Given that Rokugan's population total nears 30 million and that the Unicorn Clan is likely the second smallest clan (the Dragon Clan probably being smallest), the Unicorn Provinces probably boast about 2 million inhabitants of which there are approximately 300 thousand samurai (about 240 thousand bushi, 20 thousand shugenjas, and 40 thousand "others").
The hinin population is considerably less proportionally in comparison to the other clans as handling dead animals as a profession (tanners, trappers, etc.) is not considered dishonourable among the Unicorns (after all, the Unicorn cavalry uses saddles made of leather).
