Captain Kuroshima, Kameto

Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto's (Yamamoto, Isoruku) senior staff officer, Kameto Kuroshima, oversaw the preparation of plans for the Hawaii Operation. The naval aspects were combined with the work of the air experts, chief of whom was Commander Minoru Genda (Genda, Minoru). Captain Sadatoshi Tomioka (Tomioka, Sadatoshi) and the Imperial Navy General Staff opposed the plans.
