Yoshitaka made her debut in Sion Sono’s 2006 film, “Noriko’s Dinner Table”.

Sometime around September of 2007, she was involved in a car accident in which she fractured her jaw, forcing her to stay in the intensive care unity of a hospital for 5 days. However, while in the hospital, she got the news that she had won the audition for the lead role in Yukio Ninagawa’s adaptation of Hitomi Kanehara’s Akutagawa Prize-winning novel “Snakes & Earrings”. Although the role promised to be extremely demanding—requiring piercings, tattoos, and nudity—she reportedly gained some perspective and courage by comparing her brief 20-year existence to Earth’s 4.6 billion years and by putting all of her trust in Ninagawa’s direction.
