Hidaka began her career as an idol star, but switched to voice acting, and was employed by the talent management firm 81 Produce. Hidaka used to use the kanji variant 日髙 (note that the second kanji is different). She switched to the current usage (日高) around 1995 when she found that it was written that way already on many things and after friends recommended the kanji with the lower stroke count. Her fans have given her the affectionate name "Nonko" (ノン子).

In 1982, during her time as an idol star, Noriko appeared in a Japanese TV commercial for Nivea skin milk. She has also done voice-over commercials for programs and games, in which she plays a role, such as 3rd Super Robot Wars Alpha: To the End of the Galaxy.
