Ishirō Honda (本多猪四郎 Honda Ishirō, sometimes miscredited in foreign releases as "Inoshiro Honda") (May 7, 1911 – February 28, 1993), was a Japanese film director. He is best known for his kaiju and tokusatsu films, including several entries in the Godzilla series, but also worked extensively in the documentary and war genres earlier in his career. Honda was also a lifelong friend and collaborator of Akira Kurosawa, and worked with Kurosawa extensively during the 1980s and '90s.
Il a essentiellement réalisé des films fantastiques dont des séries sur Godzilla et sur Mothra. Ces films mettent en scène les stigmates et les traumatismes du Japon d'après-guerre (bombes atomiques sur Hiroshima et Nagasaki). Il est un précurseur du tokusatsu.
Le film Pacific Rim lui est dédié.
