Kim Kardashian sure does know how to make someone's day and there is no doubt that the reality star will put in that extra effort when it comes to her husband, Kanye West. Thanks to a throwback picture which she shared on her social media, we were able to find out the unique way in which she planned the entire surprise.

The photo that was shared by Kim showed Kanye beaming with happiness while in front of him lay boxes full of candies and eatables. The picture was taken when the couple was heading to a trip to Japan as an escape from the media to privately celebrate Kanye's 40th birthday. 

"Throwback to that time I surprised Kanye with a trip to Japan for his birthday!" Kim captioned the picture. It so happens that Kanye had to play a little game before finding out where they were headed and the game was a simple one with the singer having to figure out their destination by looking at the eatables that were placed in front of him. 

"He had to guess where we were going based on the snacks and magazines I had the plane stocked with! He was happy!" she further added. In the picture, one can see the boxes filled with items like Sriracha potato chips and Chibi Super Candy.

The mom of three decided to head to Japan because they thought that it would be the perfect place for them to spend time together without people disturbing them. “We would put on hoodies. We took the train. No one bothered us,” she told The View. “It was great.”

Even though her kids did not tag along in this mini trip of the couple,  they did join their parents for a trip to the Bahamas shortly before and it is there that all of them celebrated Kanye's special day. Despite Kanye and Kim's trip being a short one, the two did enjoy the getaway. 

“It’s great to get away when there’s no noise and just us,” she said at the time. “That trip was really special.”
