I'm not sure it really makes sense to ask in this way; Japanese writing 
typically mixes all three.

Taking the first sentence of the Japanese section in CJKsample.tex, for 
instance, we have (if I've identified the characters properly):

katakana: コンピューター hiragana: は、 kanji: 本質的 hiragana: には kanji: 数字 
hiragana: しか kanji: 扱 hiragana: うことができません。

This includes Katakana (used for the word "Unicode", because it's a 
borrowing), Kanji, and Hiragana, all in the same text. That's normal, 
as far as I understand.
