No, being a vehicle for sale after January 1, 1996 in the US it has to have OBDII. The standard was a bit splintered in those days, though, with five different electrical interfaces. Yours uses the ISO 9141-2/KWP2000 interface - make sure your reader supports it (most modern readers do). See the source for more about this mess.

It is also possible the fuse powering the OBDII interface is blown. It is often connected to the lighter fuse but I'm not sure about your Honda.

Many people, including that website, get that wrong. A lot of 96 model cars built in 95 were OBD I. And some of those had OBD II connectors, so it was hard to tell.
