Best Answer

During World War I, Japan and the USA actually fought on the same side, although I'm not certain that they were ever technically allied.

After that war, the USA and Japan eventually had a "falling out". Japan began ruthlessly attacking China in the 1930's, conquering chunks and setting up "puppet" countries under their control. Relations became worse until eventually in 1941, Japan attacked the US Navy at Pearl Harbor in Hawaii. Japan and the US were officially at war- which is the opposite of allies.

Japan was allied with Italy and Germany during World War II, along with a few other smaller countries like Hungary and Romania. The USA was allied with the UK, Soviet Union, China, and many other countries.
