If you have a scalar value then you can look it up in the UniHan database.
I would not rely on the mappings to major standards to determine the
language, I can imagine that maybe the chinese include some non-chinese
kanji in their standards because they come up in their foreign affairs.
I would go for the Phonetic Data.
If there only is an entry for Cantonese or Mandarin pronunciation then
surely it is Chinese.
If there only is an entry for Japanese Kun pronunciation then surely it is
Do not try to guess the language of a text from just one value, if the text
contains kana then assume the kanji are Japanese too, if the text contains
hangul then assume the kanji are Korean too.
If you don't want to consult the UniHan database over the WWW then the data
files for it are available at ftp://ftp.unicode.org/
