There where 59 Japanese killed in Pearl Harbor, all members of

the Imperial Japanese Navy. Nine were the crew of 5 Type A midget

submarines (of the 10 crew one was captured). The remainder were

crews from aircraft shot down in the attack or lost as a result of

damage and unable to return to the carriers.

From Britannica Concise Encyclopedia: (64)

Japanese losses:

4 midget submarines sunk,

1 midget submarine run aground,

29 aircraft destroyed,

55 airmen killed

9 submariners killed
