What would have been the most likely triggers for an alt-WWI that breaks out 20+ years later than the real WWI?

Japan didn't actually invade French Indochina until after the Fall of France, though.
Do you think Japan would have tried to further expand in the 1930s and 1940s without WW1 occurring until the late 1930s? Would they have still been on the Allied side? Most land they coveted belonged to the Allied Nations.

I think that Japan would not have been willing to expand in the 1930s or 1940s if this would have meant war with a coalition of other Great Powers--especially if Japan would have been fighting by itself.
