Japan did not side with the Axis intentionally. Japan wanted to expand its power in Asia and the Pacific. This brought it in conflict with Britain in Asia, and the United States in the Pacific. On the other side of the world Britain was fighting Germany but this fight had nothing to do with Japan. Russia, which was an ally with both Britain and the US did not declare war on Japan until after the bombing of Nagasaki in 1945.
