Windows 7: Change default font for Japanese IME

Windows 7 Professional 64bit
Change default font for Japanese IME

First time poster

I use Japanese language quite extensively, and have setup Japanese IME on my laptop. I don't like the look of the default font that is used by the IME, and have found a few that I liked.

So following this tutorial here, I managed to change the default windows font to one that has support for Japanese characters, e.g somenicefont

Problem is, some applications e.g yahoo messenger doesn't seem to like this.
When I start a new chat in Yahoo messenger, it'd pick the right font, which is somenicefont.
However, when I switched to microsoft IME to input Japanese text, the font automatically changed back to MS PGothic.

Is there a way for me to set the default font for Japanese IME to somenicefont?
