If Hitler was all about the Aryan race proving itself to be superior and becoming the master race, then why did he have and embrace support from the Japanese?

He didn't really want to. He actually said that it was a terrible idea to be allied with the Japanese.

It was a strategic alliance. Japan was an empire back then, and teaming up with another aggressor was a very good opportunity to expand and conquer their neighbors. They simply seized the opportunity offered by a weakened Europe and a busy America, and Hitler's playground was restricted to continental Europe so he had nothing to lose by forming an alliance with them. It was a win-win relationship, but the Japanese didn't really support Germany, it's more like they were both trying to conquer their own geographical area and since their national interests weren't in conflict, they supported each other.

Also, both are usually put on the same side (namely the Axis) in History books, but the ties between the German and Japanese governments were actually pretty thin.

Both were pissed at the end result of WWI. Germany had to give up many things, and Japan didn't get as much land as they wanted.

In fact, they got none except a couple hundred square kilometers of radioactive land.

Emperor Hirohito was just as bat shit crazy and obsessed with power as Hitler was

Not to mention w/ the japs on his side he had a pretty bargaining penny if those Rooskies ever got too uppity

Hitler's aim was never really to take over the world like Pinky and the Brain. He wanted Lebensraum in Europe and he also wanted to destroy Bolshevism. The Japanese would have been a good ally against the USSR.

Japan wanted Southern(?) parts of Asia for resources. While everyone else is busy going and fighting with Germany and such, Japan in theory goes ahead and clears out that area for itself.

Japanese were douches at the time. However, they're the friendly alternative to the Chinese now, so we can embrace them with open arms

League of nations was pretty much irrelevent when Germany and Japan allied.

He'd have the USA to deal with first.

Despite that disgusting picture, there's no guarantee that's true.

If he had achieved lebensraum and the destruction of the bolsheviks and everything else on his hateful agenda, he would have made a goal for world domination. The guy was crazy.

He couldn't have stretched his forces any further. If he had achieved his plans for a German lebensraum in Europe and successfully taken out the Soviets, he would have taken time to regroup and recover from the war effort first.

But we can't speculate on what he would have done next. Most of his plans were impossible to sustain on the long term anyway, and he would have been defeated eventually.
