China was having a civil war, the British Empire was fighting a small war in Europe, the Soviets were fighting a small war in Europe, France had just been invaded, the Netherlands had just been invaded, they’d already taken Korea, and America was still isolationist.

That about covers all their neighbours.

It wasn’t that Japan was strong, everyone else was week or distracted.
