Chubu region between Tokyo, Kyoto and Nara in Honshu Island which was originally full of neat tea plant, which interrupted it came planted with a delicious strawberry. But now Honda has been swallowed by the birth of Hamamatsu is the largest city in the province.

Honda Gihei His father was a blacksmith-turned-entrepreneur bicycle repair shop, while his mother named Mika, Soichiro eldest of nine children, but only four made it to adulthood. The others died in childhood due to shortage of drugs and also due to slums.

Although Honda Gihei poor, but he likes to renewal. When it appears mouthpiece of Western capital, he did not hesitate to replace the traditional cigaret pipe is bent, do not care about his neighbors think it strange. Apparently it's nature and also the skill to handle the machine down on her eldest son.

Before entering the school was Soichiro was happy, helping his father in an iron workshop. He was also very fascinated to see and hear dengum rice milling which is located a few kilometers from his village.Low achievement in school. Honda claims-ulangannya replicates poorly. He does not like to read, while the writing feels very hard.

Not infrequently he is absent. "Even now I am more efficient learning from TV than from reading. If I read, nothing stuck to the brain, "he said.

When it was grade five and six, Soichiro talent stood out in the field of science. Although it was only a dozen years, but in science classes in Japan has raised objects such as batteries, scales, test tubes and machines. Soichiro easily capture the information the teacher and he easily answers.

Some time before that, for the first time Soichiro saw the car. "When I forget everything. I chased the car and managed to cling briefly behind. When the car stopped, the oil drips onto the ground. I kiss the ground that dibasahinya. Maybe I just like a dog's behavior. Then I wipe the grease on your hands and arms. Perhaps at that moment in my heart the desire to someday make his own car. Since then there is sometimes a car coming to our village. Every time I hear the roar of the car, I ran into the street, no matter at that time was holding my sister. "

Soichiro had only attended school for ten years. After graduating from elementary school, bad boy was sent to secondary schools in Futumata not far from his residence. Graduated from high school, he returned to his father's house. Gihei Honda have already switched from a blacksmith into a bike shop entrepreneur. Gihei Honda has magazine The World of Wheels Soichiro read with great interest.

In the magazine an auto repair shop of Tokyo put up ads looking for employees. Soichiro hastily proposed and she accepted. Although the father is worried, but Soichiro also ushered into the great city.Honda almost did not believe in her ears while waiting for Honda to feel called upon to learn to be a mechanic that really is the most severe test of fortitude, who had faced in his life. In the days after that he was no longer afraid to face any obstacle thanks to the perseverance he earned during his lackeys.Honda's long career did not know much about money, just get a little profit that first year. But Honda was lucky because his workshop a success.

He decided to save money during his tenure and estimates will be able to collect up to 1,000 yen.Honda famous during his life as an inventor. He holds the patent of more than 100 personal discovery. The first, the discovery is the technique of making car radius of the metal. When the cars in Japan using the radius of flammable wood. Japanese firms immediately exporting the metal fingers to India. At age 25 he gained 1,000 yen profit a month.

The Company also appreciate the young people and are always recruiting young people to give "new blood" and fresh ideas. When Honda withdrew in 1973, was chosen as a replacement for Kyoshi Kawashima, head of Honda's research enterprise. During its history, the company has experienced strikes Honda only once in 1954. When the Honda and management on the one hand facing younger workers and Honda in the other Contracting Party. But as companies in Japan like everything was resolved by consensus.

Since 1973, Honda moved to a four-wheeled vehicle market to continue to develop the company's total income. Honda staff are on the increase 10% every year. When they get older, it means the company will increase the weight load. Though Honda faces heavy competition in the domestic market and abroad.To continue to create new market they should always look for unique and efficient techniques as well as selling products at competitive prices. However, when Honda and Fujisawa resigned in the fall of 1973, Honda said, "I could retreat without feeling worried, because I believe the company will move forward with passion, overcoming the difficulties and flexible, without losing its freshness."

"Quite frankly I feel young in terms of mental and physical," said Honda. "I guess you can not win from me. But now I must admit I often feel jealous of the young people. I was told that in America the general corporate leaders aged 40 -'s and led the company's 60-year-old often stagnated. We now are entering a new era that requires new values. Although I and the deputy leader of the public felt we were young, we thought our life was over for the lead. "

If I look back, I see that I've made nothing but mistakes, a series of failures and a spate of regret, "said Honda. "But I am also pleased for my success. Although I often make mistakes and failures, but it never caused by the same thing. I never repeat my mistakes and always strive to improve themselves. In this I succeeded.

"He still holds the largest stake in the company. When he resigned in 1973 earnings approaching $ 1.7 billion. Although retired his talk was heard. He said, the future of Japanese industry is not determined by to fast, but by the quality of the goods that we make and their effects on the interests of human beings. If we make the stuff that causes much pollution you will probably be profitable, but only briefly, after it went bankrupt.
