Life and career
Noriko was born in Nagano Prefecture, Japan on March 22, 1988. She was one of the winners at the 2005 Seikore competition, short for Zenkoku Joshikousei Seifuku Collection, a Japanese national contest for girls of high school age to model school uniforms and bikinis. She has since made a number of gravure videos.
In May 2006, at age eighteen, she appeared in Masato Tsujioka's award winning film Divide. That same year saw her playing a literal "living doll" in the Tetsuya Ikea produced Legend of the Doll. The Crystal Acids reviewer notes "The acting is fairly solid ... with Noriko Kijima proving that she is more than just a pretty face." She also played the role of Yoshie, Ami's best friend, in Noboru Iguchi's 2008 cult gore film The Machine Girl and was the star of the short direct-to-video sequel Shyness Machine Girl.
Along with actresses Noriko Eguchi and Saori Hara she appeared in the comedy Yuriko's Aroma (ユリ子のアロマ Yuriko no Aroma?), which debuted at the Yubari International Fantastic Film Festival in February 2010 and was released theatrically in May of that same year. At a press conference in January 2012, it was announced that Kijima, along with Rika Sakurai (櫻井里佳) and Miki Ichikawa (市川みき) had taken the Grand Prize as "Miss East Sports 2012" (ミス東スポ2012}. In March 2013, she co-starred with Hiroko Kamata and Maki Fukumi in the lesbian-themed movie Kotatso, Orange and Meow! (こたつと、みかんと、ニャー。 Kotatsu to, Mikan to, Nya.?), the title referring to the online "handles" of the three girls who go on a trip to a hot springs.
