Why is my transmission leaking?
Leaks next to the flywheel
Likely the seal on the bearing, which is installed in such a way you need to remove the tranny to get to the seal. Most FWD (FF) cars have a transverse mount, which is the opposite of RWD (FR) designs where it's on the back of the engine with a rear main seal where you can generally drop the trans while leaving the engine in the car (albeit requiring extra steps pulling both avoids).
This is usually the part at fault when this occurs. I'm assuming this has a manual trans because it isn't a torque converter as well. Has the clutch been done within the last ~100k miles or so? If not, it may also be near the end of its life as well, not just the seal. Depending on if you know when it was done (or if it was done at all), it may be better to do the seals, flywheel, clutch, and pressure plate if you want to avoid any surprises later. If you go with a racing clutch (which can be done on a stock tune; they generally perform MUCH better than the OEM parts and if I had to do this on a manual trans Honda as well I'm upgrading to an S1 clutch, flywheel and pressure plate) you need to do all of it so it all lines up and doesn't act funny if you're pairing a racing clutch to a stock flywheel and pressure plate.
The problem is due to the complexity of the transverse mount commonly used in FF Hondas requiring an engine pull, this job isn't quite as friendly to a DIYer as you may be hoping; usually, the engine+trans has to come out as a pair with the transverse mount designs. If you can rent a shop with a lift and borrow an engine lift this may be attainable as a DIY repair. For most of these, the order is this:
Verify this to be sure, but that's the general rule.
