We present weak lensing mass estimates for a sample of 458 galaxy clusters from the redMaPPer Sloan Digital Sky Survey DR8 catalogue using Hyper Suprime-Cam weak lensing data. We develop a method to quickly estimate cluster masses from weak lensing shear and use this method to estimate weak lensing masses for each of the galaxy clusters in our sample. Subsequently, we constrain the mass-richness relation as well as the intrinsic scatter between the cluster richness and the measured weak lensing masses. When calculating the mass-richness relation for all clusters with a richness λ > 20, we find a tension in the slope of the mass-richness relation with the Dark Energy Survey Year 1 stacked weak lensing analysis. For a reduced sample of clusters with a richness λ > 40, our results are consistent with the Dark Energy Survey Year 1 analysis.
