Japan startups cash in on e-learning demand spurred by COVID

Experts see expanding beyond providing lessons key for further growth

Tokyo-based startup Phonim launched online music lessons in July, one of a number of education businesses cashing in on growing demand for online learning during the coronavirus pandemic.
