Soichiro Honda (1906-1991), the founder of Honda Motor Company is a man who transformed the world with the best technological advancements under the most pressing constraints.
Born in Hamamatsu, in the Shizuoka prefecture of Japan, in 1906, Soichiro Honda’s father owned a blacksmith's shop and repaired bicycles as a side-line. Soichiro Honda left elementary school in April 1922 at the age of fifteen and joined Art Shokai as an apprentice in Tokyo. Here, Mr. Honda worked hard to extend and deepen his understanding of automobile engineering and amazed everyone by the extent of his expertise. One day in September 1946, Soichiro Honda came across a generator engine designed for a wireless radio from the former Imperial Army. When Mr. Honda saw it, he was immediately inspired with an idea. It was a moment of destiny. Moving forward with grit and relentless determination, Soichiro Honda established Honda Motor Co. Ltd, on September 24, 1948, in Itaya-cho, Hamamatsu.
