    The mongols famously failed in their quest to conquer Japan but what would a Japan ruled by the Mongols have looked like and developed into?

    If the example of Korea is anything to go by, it'd be at best a close vassal state. I doubt the Mongols would rule over Japan directly.

    Maybe they set up an non-hereditary (at first) Mongol shogunate.
