Hondawara is a stocky, muscular man of average height with large arch-shaped eyes, fairly thick, black eyebrows, and a fairly wide nose. Like the other members of the East City Police, instead of wearing a conventional police uniform, he wears an Edo-period shinobi shozoku (ninja uniform), consisting of a hood, a headband with a metal plate reading "Police", a sleeveless kimono, wrist-bands, a black leather belt, baggy hakama bound at the calves with cloth greaves, tabi socks and straw waraji sandals. He also carries a ninjato (straight-bladed ninja sword) on his back from the right shoulder.
Jaco the Galactic Patrolman
Main article: Jaco the Galactic Patrolman Hondawara is brought to Omori's Island by boat along with his comrades Hijiki, Asao and Mozuku for an assignment led by Tamagoro Katayude which is to capture the mysterious Mask Man that was causing trouble in East City. When arriving on the island, he is seen holding a Gun during Katayude's conversation with Tokunoshin Omori. When Jaco, the real identity of the Mask Man shows himself, he quickly does away with Hondawara along with the other special forces members and pushes them all off the docks so he can go save Tights who was in danger of the Twinkle 8 malfunctioning. While Jaco is flying his spaceship to save Tights, Hondawara along with the other special forces members are seen still on the island watching through sets of binoculars. After Jaco, Omori and Tights arrive back on the island after the successful rescue, Hondawara is seen saluting along with the other members and forgiving and thanking Jaco for saving the city from the Twinkle 8 crashing into it.
