The France international doubled PSG's lead on Saturday with a wonderful near post effort that left goalkeeper Shusaku Nishikawa rooted to the spot.
Marco Verratti started the move and popped a pass to Mbappe, who flicked the ball into Juan Bernat's path.
Bernat gave it back to Mbappe who turned away from his defender with blistering speed.

The 23-year-old took the ball to the byline and it looked like the chance had gone.
Mbappe instead unleashed a rocket with his right foot that flew over Nishikawa and into the top right corner. He is on another level right now.
Everyone inside the Saitama Stadium gave a round of applause as Mbappe celebrated with his teammates.
Pablo Sarabia had given Christophe Galtier's side the lead inside 16 minutes before Mbappe's strike ten minutes from the break.
Arnaud Kalimuendo added a third in the second half to ensure Galtier maintained his 100 per cent record as manager.
The 55-year-old replaced Mauricio Pochettino earlier this month and he won the Ligue 1 title with Lille in 2021.
He has been tasked with overhauling PSG's squad and their collective mentality.
Despite winning Ligue 1 eight times since being taken over by Qatar Sports Investments, they are yet to win the Champions League.
Billions have been pumped into superstar names and it has seen the French giants collapse time and time again in Europe.
Galtier has tweaked PSG's system to a back three and it is a drastic departure from the 4-3-3 used by Pochettino.
When asked about the tweak, Galtier told L'Equipe: "We are playing in a new system, a 3-4-1-2, so we have to assimilate.
"We had a lot of imbalances and conceded too many situations on our goal. It’s a big work axis for the weeks to come to want, to be able, to have a lot of people offensively and to be able at the same time to keep the right balance.
"We must try to find adjustments and compensations quickly to avoid being caught in transition situations. There is always adaptation. There is also a reflection to work in another system while remaining very dangerous offensively."
PSG return to action on Monday against Gamba Osaka.
