Well, right now the average age in the UK is 39, in Japan it's 42.

That gap will surely widen as Japan's population levels decline.

I expect so. Population growth, 2002-2008: Japan 0.25%, UK 1.95%.

Japan is one of the few nations in the world to have, as Wikipedia puts it, "severe enough or sustained sub-replacement fertility to have population decline", along with Russia, Lithuania, and Ukraine.
