A few years ago I bought a nice katana to bring home as a gift for someone. The store I bought it from wrapped it up nice in a box with a handle on it for easy carrying. I didn't have any reason to take it out of the box while I was still travelling, so as long as you don't open it up to swing it around you should be fine.

I would check what you are allowed to bring into your home country; some may not allow weapons in either checked or carry-on baggage. You may need to consider buying a "fake" katana - i.e. the blade is not sharpenable.
