In 2009, Yoshitaka was given the role of the suicidal Kairi Hayakawa in the romantic-comedy drama Love Shuffle. Later in the year, she portrayed Yūki Matsunaga (松永 由岐, Matsunaga Yūki) in the police drama Tokyo Dogs with Shun Oguri and Hiro Mizushima as her co-stars.

In 2010, she starred as all three sisters in a short drama series titled Tofu Shimai (豆腐姉妹, lit. Tofu Sisters). It was announced on May 13, 2010 that Yoshitaka was given her first lead role in a network television drama series called Mioka (美丘), portraying a university student with an incurable illness.

She is set to play Tae Kojima of the two-part 2011 live-action adaptation of the sci-fi and action manga Gantz. It was announced that Yoshitaka will take up the lead role in Kōji Maeda's movie Konzen Tokkyū, portraying a young woman dating multiple men in hopes of finding the right one to marry. The movie is set to premiere in Spring 2011.

While she was preparing for her role in Snakes and Earrings, Yoshitaka was involved with a traffic accident in September 2007, causing her to fracture her jaw. She stayed in the ICU for five days as a result.
