Written in kana?

In the manga Yotsuba!, the table of contents section is written as もくじ。Can it be written in kana in other situations?

Whether a word is written in kana or not is largely a stylistic choice. Technically, you can write anything using only kana, but depending on the word it's usually more common to write it one way or the other. In this case, it's most common to use the kanji, but writing it in hiragana give it a more light/childlike feel, which is what I imagine the manga is going for.
