Best Answer

Both Italy and Japan saw Germany as a powerful ally. Italy wanted to grab whatever it could. Japan was opportunistic in that they wanted to control the Pacific and believed that they had a much better chance while the U.S. and other allies were focused on Germany. Their ideologies were similar, with the Nazis (National Socialists) of Germany and Austria being racist and having a firm belief that the Aryan race was far superior to all others, and the Japanese believing that the purity of their ancestry would give them the ability to deliver a war that the impure citizens of the Allied nations would not be able to endure.
