I think there may be another topic somewhere this may fit in but could Japan have offered to go to war against Germany after the fall of western Europe, in exchange for the UK and perhaps the Dutch East Indies, breaking the US embargos?  Could Japan have offered more to the UK than the US?

Only if you begin when the Anglo-Japanese defence treaty was not renewed in 1921.  You would need a non-militarist Government in Japan to achieve that.  Something which was very doubtful to happen and be sustained in the period before WWII.
