Headquartered at Ginza, Chuo, Tokyo, Jiji has 82 branch offices, general bureau and bureau in Japan and 28 general bureau globally. Yutaka Nishizawa (西沢 豊 Nishizawa Yutaka?) is the current President of Jiji Press.

In 2012, a number of people raised doubts on some of its articles in Japan. In June, a writer in Washington wrote a draft by copying and pasting an article which Kyodo News service wired. A month's leave was imposed, and his two bosses were demoted and President Masahiro Nakata (中田 正博 Nakata Nasahiro) resigned, taking responsibility for the plagiarism.[citation needed]
