Honda, who was born and reared in Settsu, had played for the junior level team at Gamba Osaka but had not been elevated to the young squad. Honda participated in the 2004 J.League Cup as a Special Designated Youth Player while a student at Seiryo High School. He started his professional career in 2005 with J1 League team Nagoya Grampus Eight after finishing high school.
Honda and Eredivisie team VVV-Venlo agreed to a two-and-a-half-year contract on January 16, 2008. He faced relegation for the first time in his professional career during his first six months at VVV when his new team was demoted to the Eerste Divisie, the second tier.
He contributed to the team’s return to the Eredivisie in the 2008–09 season by scoring 16 goals in 36 league games. Among the supporters of the team, he was known as Keizer Keisuke (literally, Emperor Keisuke). Additionally, Honda brought Tetsuro Kiyooka, his agent, to VVV-Venlo two years after introducing him to Maya Yoshida in 2008.
Honda joined Botafogo, a team in the Campeonato Brasileiro Série A, on January 31, 2020. On March 15 in a 1-1 tie with Bangu in the Campeonato Carioca, he made his debut and scored his first goal, opening the score from a penalty kick.
In addition to thanking and apologizing to the supporters, he announced his departure from the team on December 28, three months before his contract was set to expire. He expressed his frustration with the club’s board’s decisions and the lack of results, noting that it had changed head coaches four times during the season. Over the course of all competitions, he made 27 appearances and scored three goals.
Honda confirmed an agreement with Portimonense of the Primeira Liga on February 4, 2021. Two days later, the agreement was formally announced, with Honda joining the Portuguese team on a six-month contract with a one-year extension option.
Although Honda had spent less than two months as a free agent, Portimonense was unable to register him in the league due to LPFP regulations that required them to have been in that status for at least three months in order to be registered outside of the transfer window period. As a result, the deal fell through. On February 11, he peacefully split from the club.
Honda signed a contract with Neftçi PFK through the end of the 2021 season on March 15, 2021. Keisuke Honda and Neftçi won the Azerbaijan Premier League title at the end of the campaign.
Honda departed the team on June 16, 2021, after his contract with Neftçi expired. During that time, Honda appeared in seven games and scored twice.
Honda joined FK Sduva on September 14, 2021, for a period of time ending on December 31, 2021.
Honda played for the U-23 national team, which qualified for the 2008 Summer Olympics finals, and was a part of the Japan squad for the 2005 FIFA World Youth Championship. On June 22, 2008, he made his full international debut for Japan against Bahrain in a World Cup qualifying match. He was formally introduced on July 14, 2008, as a midfielder for the Japanese U-23 national football team competing in the Olympic football tournament in Beijing.
In an exhibition game against Chile on May 27, 2009, at Nagai Stadium in Osaka, he scored his first goal for the senior national team, earning him the moniker “Emperor Keisuke.” Since his debut for the Japan national team in 2008, he has scored 37 goals in 98 appearances.
2010 FIFA World Cup

He won the FIFA Man of the Match Award for his contribution to the match, and Japan’s 1-0 victory became the country’s first World Cup victory away from home. In the 17th minute of the last group stage match against Denmark, he struck a fantastic free kick from 30 yards out.
In the 88th minute, after making his way into the penalty area, he turned provider for Shinji Okazaki with a Cruyff Turn to make the score 3-1 in Japan. His efforts earned him the “Man of the Match” award once more and advanced Japan to the knockout round. Japan lost to Paraguay in their round of 16 encounters, losing 3-5 in penalties after the game ended scoreless after extra time.
2014 FIFA World Cup
In Group C of the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil, Japan will compete against Colombia, Greece, and Ivory Coast. In the 16th minute of Japan’s opening match against Ivory Coast, Honda received a ball from Yuto Nagatomo following a brief throw-in and scored with a left-footed effort.
