Question in the title is self explanatory.

  • If it's Junk, why not just delete it, or, if you have one, tell your spam filter to treat it as spam?

  • It's getting through my spam filter, and I want to move it to my junk folder because that increases the chances of my spam filter picking out similar messages in the future.

If you open the menus you can see keyboard shortcuts next to the commands. For this it is:
Shift Command J

Message Menu

  • I don't see any command next to Move To Junk (it's itself is a parent menu, but selecting it works too)

You can create one by going to settings > keyboard > shortcuts. Then find what you are saying and create or activate the shortcut
