Two thoughts, though it could it be a several things :( . If its worse at low revs it could be valve clatter, but this doesn't seem likely in your low mileage vehicle. It could also be an exhaust leak; does it worsen with engine speed?

My '97 Prelude with 33,000 miles also ticks but has no deleterious effect on performance or mileage. May be Honda engine management hardware or some similar from that year.

I'm sure others will post better suggestions.
