The Yomiuri Shimbun is Japan’s largest daily newspaper with a circulation of nearly 8 million copies. We are headquartered in Tokyo and have over 20 international bureaus, three of which are in the United States: Washington DC, New York and Los Angeles. 

Main duties include assisting our Washington-based Japanese correspondents by attending video-conference, telephonic and in-person briefings and press conferences; tracking relevant news stories; arranging and conducting interviews; composing clear and concise memos on issues of interest; and covering various events, including those held by area think tanks and Congress.

Additionally, because there are congressional midterm elections this year, coverage of various elections and campaign rallies and related events will also be an important part of the reporting duties. Rapid and precise transcription is also required.
