The staff of Admiral Yamamoto prepared the plans and preparation for the attack on Pearl Harbour. Admiral Yamamota approved the plans once they were prepared. Japanese Senior Naval Officers routinely utilized their staff to prepare plans and approved or disapproved them.

Answeralthough it was Yamamoto and his officers that planned the attack, the plan was formed aboput a month after the attack on the Italian Fleet at Taranto in 1940, Admiral Yamamoto studied this attack thoroughly, using it as his blue print. (all he needed to do was wait until his enemy had his fleet at anchor in a shallow harbour before attacking.)
