Where did Japan get their oil during WWII?

To my understanding the United States was the largest exporter of oil to the Japanese prior to Pearl Harbor. The Japanese islands aren't known for their oil fields. It's also believed that the attacks of pearl harbor are the result of the US refusing to send Japan oil. Were there any other countries supporting Japan with oil?How did the Japanese manage to maintain a military without imported oil?
