What could avert the UK-Japanese alliance, with a late PoD (that does not prevent the Sino-Japanese War of 94-95 from starting), any time after 1 October, 1894.

Intentionally in post-1900 forum because that's when the alliance and all its consequences were.

Something similar to the https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C5%8Ctsu_incident happens between 1894 and 1902, when the Duke of York (OTL future George V) is visiting Japan, and leads to his death/is handled less diplomatically/the assassin (a policeman) turns out to have been the tool of someone higher up.
