Yoshitaka Yuriko, born in Tokyo, is a Japanese actress who is represented by the Japanese agency Amuse.

Yoshitaka made her acting debut in 2006. She was given the lead role in the live-action adaptation of Hitomi Kanehara's award-winning novel Snakes and Earrings in 2007. Portraying Lui, a teenager whose life goes into a downward spiral after meeting the forked-tongued and tattooed Ama, the role was Yoshitaka's breakthrough role. The Japanese public began to take notice of her, and in a poll conducted by Oricon, Yoshitaka was the fifth promising young actress of 2009 and 2009's freshest female celebrity. In 2010, Oricon again conducted a poll on the most promising actress, and she managed to climb up to top the poll.

Yoshitaka began to receive more work in 2008 as she appeared in Flow's music video "Arigatou ("Thanks"), was given her first lead role in the comedy-drama Konno-san to Asobo ("Let's Play with Konno-san") and took up the lead role in the film Yubae Shoujo ("A Girl in the Sunset") before the theatrical release of her other lead film Snakes and Earrings.

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 Matsunaga Yuuki 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 ("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, portraying a university student with an incurable illness.

She played Tae Kojima in the two-part 2011 live-action adaptation of the sci-fi and action manga Gantz. It was announced that Yoshitaka would take up the lead role in Kouji Maeda's movie Konzen Tokkyuu portraying a young woman dating multiple men in hopes of finding the right one to marry. The movie premiered in Spring 2011.

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