If something is 'difficult' then it is also said to be 'hard' so 'difficult to explain' and 'hard to explain' mean the same thing To view religion means how you see and it and what you believe in and think about it, if you believe in religion you are said to have 'religious views'
difficult'(難しい)は'hard'と同じ意味です。ですから、'difficult to explain'(説明が難しい)と'hard to explain'は同じ意味です。

'to view religion'(宗教を見る)は「宗教に対する考え方」を表します。宗教を信じる人には'religious views'(宗教的見解)があります。

  • The idea of religion is a very complex one in Japan.

  • Japanese people's religious views are hard to explain.

  • Japanese religious views are often inscrutable to foreigners.

All three of these sentences would inform the person hearing them that religion in Japan is hard to explain. The first sentence uses the phrase "very complex". Anything "very complex" is not easily understood. For example: Calculus is a very complex subject. The second sentence uses the phrase "hard to explain". Hard to explain conveys the idea of near impossibility of explanation. For example: The mysteries of the universe are hard to explain. Lastly, the third sentence uses the word "inscrutable". This means "hard to explain" but also expresses the idea that it is just impossible to translate into other cultures or languages. For example: Japanese poetry is inscrutable to anyone who is not a native Japanese speaker.
上記3例どれを使っても、日本の宗教観が説明しづらいことが伝わります。

一つ目の文では"very complex"というフレーズを使っています。"very complex"は理解しづらいことを表します。

【例】
Calculus is a very complex subject.
(微分積分学は非常に複雑な教科です)
----

二つ目の文では"hard to explain"というフレーズを使っています。"hard to explain"は説明するのが難しいことを表します。

【例】
The mysteries of the universe are hard to explain.
(宇宙の謎を説明するのは難しい)

最後、三つ目の文では"inscrutable"という単語を使っています。これは「説明するのが難しい」という意味ですが、他の文化や言語には訳せないというニュアンスがあります。
【例】

(日本の詩は日本語のネイティブスピーカーでないと理解できない)

Using the expression 'quite complex' in the first sentence suggests that it will require a great deal of explanation or study or detail to give the right information. the words - 'quite complex', 'challenging' and 'difficult' or 'hard' explain that it will require some explanation to provide an answer to the question of religion.
一つ目の例では 'quite complex' という表現を使っています。これは、正しい情報を与えるには多くの説明あるいは勉強が必要というニュアンスです。

'quite complex' 'challenging' そして 'difficult' あるいは 'hard' は、日本人の宗教観について答えるには少し説明が必要なことを表します。

The two sentences you see provided above are great ways to express to your listener that it is hard to explain how Japanese people view religion. In the first sentence you will see the word viewpoint. This means opinion. This is a word that is appropriate for both formal and informal settings. It would make a great addition to your vocabulary.
上記二つの例文は、日本人の宗教観を説明するのは難しいと伝える素晴らしい言い方です。

一つ目の例文には"viewpoint"という単語が使われています。これは「考え方」という意味です。この単語はフォーマルな場面でもインフォーマルな場面でも使うことができます、ぜひ語彙に加えておいてください。

Difficult viewpoints and subjects are usually described as being complex or complicated. Both words can be used interchangeably and both deal with something not simple, perhaps having many layers, and requiring an extended explanation when being taught. Example: His comments were lengthy and complex..
考え方やテーマについて「難しい」と言う場合、complex や complicated が使われることが多いです。これらはどちらも同じ意味で、ともに、複雑で、人に伝える際には長い説明を要することを表します。

例:His comments were lengthy and complex.(彼のコメントは長くて複雑だった)
