So what if Japan, instead of going for the European colonial possesions and the U.S., attacked Russia near Vladivostok. The Russians then would need to fight a two-front war, when there already heaving issues with managing one front. I don't think Stalin would have won that war, effictively making all German resources available for beating the British, and there was no Pearl Harbour, so the U.S. would probably not be involved.
I think i'd be speaking German right now if this happened...

The Japanese were not at a strategical position to attack Russia, they would of had to trek through all of china where they would of met resistance...not very harsh resistance but it would of been a slow process or they would of had to trek across the siberian tundra for a long long time. It would not of been practical for them to do this. But if they would of suceeded at taking down moscow with the germans than we might of been speaking german right now.
That is a very improviable yet scary scenerio.
