Honda Airport (ホンダエアポート Honda eapōto) is a private airfield in the town of Kawajima, Hiki District, and the city of Okegawa, both in Saitama Prefecture, Japan. Another name for it is Okegawa Airfield. The operator is Honda Airways, a subsidiary of Honda Motor Co. Ltd.


The location of the airfield is 35°58'21" north latitude, 139°31'42" east longitude. The elevation is 11.9 m (39 ft), has a single runway measuring 600 m × 25 m (1,969 ft × 82 ft) and an area of 59 ha (150 acres). It operates from 9:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. (or sunset).
