—Basically, the Japanese stopped attacking. The attack was in two waves, the second ending by around 9:30am or so. For various reasons, the Japanese, specifically Admiral Nagumo, commander of the strike force, elected to break off and head back to Japan, because he knew they were going to lose.

If you mean WW II, then it ended when Japan surrendered to the US.
