The second area

The level opens with a cinematic showing Mario jumping onto a Direction Switch to change the direction the lifts are moving it, and then using them to jump onto a platform.

In the first area, the player has to travel to the far left and use the first Springboard to reach a yellow Color Switch. After pressing it, the player needs to climb the ladder and press the Direction Switch at the top, and then grab the Key nearby. The player needs to throw the Key onto the conveyor belt to the right, and then climb down the ladder and ride the conveyor below to find another Direction Switch. After pressing the button, the player needs to use the Springboard to reunite with the Key and grab it. The player then has to navigate a few lifts to reach the locked door.

In the second area, the player has to use a Hammer to defeat two sleeping Katakata Yarihōs, one on the ground and one on a platform above connected by a ladder. Next, the player has to climb across ropes and a Monchee's tail to reach a Springboard. On the other end of a conveyor belt is another Katakata Yarihō, which the player can avoid by jumping onto the ropes above, and a Hammer is also placed above the conveyor. Climbing up the ropes, the player will reach several conveyor belts that will lead to a Katakata Yarihō guarding the Mini-Mario. By doing a Handstand Jump on the top conveyor, the player can reach a Hammer that can be used to defeat the Katakata Yarihō.
