I can't display Japanese characters, so please spell it in romaji and let me know whether it is written in kanji or kana. Thanks!

Irasshaimase.
Explanation:
This is what we usually use on signs at the doors of homes and businesses. (I am a Japanese native.) It is almost always written in Hiragana. You will also hear this greeting when you enter a store or a restaurant in Japan.
