Really, there were no generals involved. Generals are the top officers in an army. The top officers in navies are admirals. The Pearl Harbor attack was planned and carried out by the Japanese Navy. The main force behind the decision to make the attack was Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto, who commanded the "Combined Fleet", most of Japan's seaborne ships. Yamamoto did not go on the attack to Hawaii, he remained in Japanese waters. The Task Force which carried out the Pearl Harbor attack was commanded by Admiral Chuichi Nagumo.
The Japanese Army was happy with the various attacks on the British, Dutch & Americans (including the Pearl Harbor attack). The Japanese Army was the main force behind the idea of going to war with Britain & the US.
