Tower of the East is the second hub of the game, accessible after the first bowser fight. While Tower of the East acts as a hub, it is technically a level as you can find many stars here, including a red coin star. As such, you are not able to access your star count in this area and you are able to choose 'Exit Course' to go back to the main hub.

Star 2: Below the TowerEdit

Located underneath the 'Tower of the East' this star is reached by beforming multiple walljumps in a row up to the star. This star can be a bit finicky to obtain as the star is near the middle of the tower not perfectly between two walls.

Star 3: On the HillsEdit

Located in the middle of the green hills in the upper parts of the level. Using a combination of a triple jump and kicks Mario can reach this star.

Star 4: Hidden AwayEdit

This star is very hidden, tucked away next to the black horned building. Mario can either drop down from above or carefully maneuver from the side. At the back of the small tunnel is the star.

Star 5: At the Top of the WorldEdit

This star is located at the very top of the level, above the entrance to the Frozen Slide level. Walljumps will get Mario up to this star.

Star 6: Bowser's Hidden StarEdit

Hidden in an alcove to the right of the entrance to Bowser's Aquatic Castle.
