How are they strategic confederates to each other? Not only are they miles away but Poland doesn't have much strategic interest in northeast Asia and Japan doesn't have much in eastern Europe. It's not like Japan and the USA.

Historically though, Japan and Poland did get on well during the first half of the 20th century. There's the story of the Polish orphans from Russian prison camps in Siberia who Japan helped rescue, hospitalise, and return home. During WW2 Polish and Japanese secret agents also cooperated due to their mutual dislike of the Soviets. For example some Polish spies were given Manchukuo diplomatic passports to protect them from the Germans, and Polish and Japanese agents exchanged information on the Germans and Soviets. Even after the outbreak of the Pacific War in 1941 (and the Polish govt. in exile's declaration of war on the side of the Allies) no Poles or Japanese fought each other, Polish agents like Michał Rybikowski continued to work with the Japanese, and the Polish community in Manchukuo was allowed to continue living there.

Since WW2 though I don't know of any close alliances between the two, particularly since for many of the last decades Poland was part of the Communist bloc. They've cordial relations now but no close alliances that I can think of, at least not near to what Japan and the US have.
