At the age of 22, he began to put up a business same with his father but an auto repair business.

When he was 31, he found the producer of Toyota’s piston rings but a World War 2 in the year 1944, the plant for the producer of Toyota piston’s rings were destroyed and the Itawa plant as well. After the WWII, Honda sold the remains at Toyota that gave him the savings to Honda company. He worked hard in experimenting the techniques of casting a piston ring to the point where all his savings were spent for the experiments including the jewelry of his wife being pawned. After all the hardships, finally he became the world’s most successful entrepreneur of mechanical engineering since Henry Ford.
