I think I'd go with the elephant.

They make excellent pack animals, they're the smartest of the three(you can train elephants to do just about anything, to include massage), sheer intimidation factor if it comes to battle, they're really damn tough even without armor, they have a smooth ride, and unlike horses(can't speak for camels), they can go all day with me riding instead of having to climb down and walk them during longer journeys.

They take a bit more to care for than horses or camels, but unless you plan on going somewhere they don't like(don't think they like cold, but they live in both jungles and deserts), they fit in just fine.

Women used the naginata, silly. Its sweeping attacks can keep several people away.

Also, I don't think I've seen any documentation of shields being commonly used amongst the samurai; both hands are generally required to use their weapons properly.
I'm pretty sure they also thought shields were either cowardly, or that it was more impressive to rely on their skill or just tanking blows. It was probably all these factors, in both existing weapons and ideology.

That's not entirely accurate; a sword compared to a spear has more comparative use than a knife compared to a rifle.
And if all you have is the sword and a bow, you're going to drop the bow once someone gets within maybe ten yards.
