Matthew asked me via Twitter DM, "Happen to know if there's a Japanese equivalent of Italian sprezzatura: art of making difficult things look easy?"
The only hit I found in Japanese Wikipedia reads the same: "sprezzatura" in katakana syllables. They give it as (muzukashii koto wo kantan ni miseru koto). Making a difficult thing look easy.

Thankfully, my wife confirmed there is no straight equivalent, but two expressions come close: sarigenai and nanigenai. Matthew asked to see the characters- so here goes, courtesy of Jim Breen's generous dictionary and the free Kotoba! app.

Did that look easy? Yes, until you know you can copy the links to the apps but not the author's name to give proper credit easily. Gah! I had to re-type the name off the screen. That feels like "DOS for Windows", using a PC in the late '80 before we knew the clipboard.
Apple's app store is elegant
in many ways, but with too much lock-in fails to be sprezzatura. There goes some life-time value.
