Honda, 27, struggled to impress since arriving from CSKA Moscow in January following a lengthy transfer saga.
The Japan midfielder eventually arrived on a free transfer after Milan refused to match the Russian club's asking price for a summer transfer. He made just 14 appearances in Serie A.
"Serie A is a far more tactical and defensive league to what I'm used to playing in," Honda was quoted as saying by Pianeta Milan. "I just need time to adapt. I get the feeling that I'm improving bit-by-bit every week, but I'm not satisfied yet."
Honda, 27, signed a contract until July 2017 when he arrived in Milan this winter. The Japan international is still keen on fulfilling that contract, and he intends to win trophies over the next three seasons.
"I want to win the scudetto, the Champions League and the World Cup with my country," Honda said.
Milan finished last season in eighth place, missing out on European football for the first time in 16 years.
The future of coach Clarence Seedorf has yet to be resolved as the club continue their summer inquest into what went wrong last term before drawing up plans for a recovery next season.
