To the best of my knowledge Pearl Harbor occurred in that the Japanese were concerned that the US would get into the war and have an effect on the war. The US had the majority of its fleet stationed in Hawaii. Hence the Japanese calculated that if they could wipe out the fleet in a sneek attack that the US would not be a factor in the war. What they did not realize that the attack was so extensive that they could have have taken over the Islands. Bottom line the US declared war on Japan immediatly following the attack.
