Honda Lock S.C. (ホンダロックSC Honda Rokku Esu Shī?) are a Japanese football (soccer) club based in Miyazaki, the capital city of Miyazaki Prefecture. They play in the Japan Football League. Their team colour is red.


The club was founded in 1964 by the factory workers of Honda Lock Manufacturing Co., an affiliate company of Honda Motor. They were promoted to the Kyushu Regional League in 1997 and acquired official backing from the company in 1999. They won the Kyushu Regional League in 2004 and were accepted by the Japan Football League following the Regional League play-off.

They spent two years in the JFL but were relegated to the Kyūshū Regional League for the 2007 season after they lost to F.C. Gifu in the promotion/relegation play-offs.
