Kim Kardashian West and her husband Kanye West may be two of the most recognizable people on Earth, but that doesn’t mean they can’t get away with taking a private vacation every now and again.
The reality megastar recently revealed that she surprised her husband with a trip to Japan for his 40th birthday — and not a single member of the paparazzi noticed.
“I surprised him with a trip to Japan, a place that he loves to go to get away and get inspiration,” Kardashian shared on The View on Tuesday. “It was great for me because I’ve never been and we had always talked about how we really wanted to go together.”
Kardashian explained that the two donned disguises while walking the streets of Japan to avoid detection by their fans. “We would put on hoodies. We took the train. No one bothered us. It was great,” she said.
The trip to Japan came just days after the duo celebrated not only Kanye’s birthday, but also their third wedding anniversary with a social media-free trip in the Bahamas. As Travel+Leisure reported, Kardashian rented an entire luxury villa for her family and friends, including their two children North, 4, and Saint, 18 months, to come celebrate the rap superstar’s milestone birthday. She even reportedly flew out cases of Casamigos for the group to sip by lounging by their private pool.
Of their Japanese journey, Kardashian added that the duo was able to hop around and explore all that the beautiful country had to offer. “It’s great to get away when there’s no noise and just us,” she said. “That trip was really special.”
