Kikujiro Honda was born in Niigata, Japan, in 1965. He made his Pink Eiga debut in 1986, and he has starred in about 100 Pink Eiga films in his career. In the 1990’s he frequently worked with the great Pink Eiga director Toshiki Sato and writer Masahiro Kobayashi (an internationally known filmmaker). In 2000, he joined the theater company, “AUN,” which performs Shakespeare. Recently, he has worked on mainstream films and TV shows in addition to Pink Eiga. One of his most recognized non-Pink Eiga films is “Bathing” (directed by Masahiro Kobayashi), which was an official selection of the Cannes International Film Festival Competition. In the 1990’s he was a regular office worker, but he quit that job to devote his life to acting.
He can naturally portray two-sided characters like the good husband who is actually abnormal or a jovial boss by day, dirty pervert by night. He received the Best Actor award at the Pink Eiga Film Festival twice. He very accurately depicts a regular office worker, since he used to be one himself. His main hobby is composing Haiku.
