Japan wasn't looking to expand its military and the idea of Japan and South Korea cooperating militarily in the 1950s was even more laughable than it is today. Moreover, it was South Korea, which had an actual land border to defend, that received primary focus in East Asia during the Cold War.

There was zero chance of the Japanese military operating outside Japan during the Cold War and everyone knew it.
