Mixing Kanji (Han script) & Hiragana in a single Japanese word is 
certainly quite common (main part of the word in kanji, the ending in 
hiragana).  I can't think of any cases where the other two would be 
mixed (with each other or with either of the first two scripts) within a 
single word, but my Japanese is pretty poor - there could easily be 
cases I'm not aware of.
