It's not clear to me what you mean by "default" here.
On a fresh non-Japanese install, the package fonts-takao-pgothic is
available. However, so is the package fonts-droid, and since the "Droid
Sans Fallback" font is kind of 'featured', it probably takes precedence
over "TakaoPGothic" for rendering Japanese contents. Is that the
situation you are talking about?
If you install Japanese, you get fonts-takao-mincho and
fonts-takao-gothic in addition to fonts-takao-pgothic, and when Japanese
is the selected display language, the system is configured to use Takao
So can you please clarify which situation you are referring to.
