Kanji is used with certain Japanese words and many Chinese loanwords. Hiragana is used when there is no Kanji representation of a Japanese word. (It's also sometimes used in place of archaic Kanji.) Katakana is used in foreign loanwords, like ドイツ語 (doitsugo) (German (language)).

Hiragana is also used for gramatical markers, like particles and verb endings.
