Why was kokuji created? Why did they need to have kanji for those words? Why couldn't hiragana and katakana do the trick?
If anyone could shed some light that would be great. Thanks.

You want me to translate a 4 page wikipedia article for you? You must think I'm really bored. :/
Check out the page that Tony linked you to. It doesn't give much on the reasons, but does have some information.
