    'The sun rises IN the east.'  Rising "to" or "on" the east does not clarify where the rising sun is originating; "in" tells us where it's coming from.

    It would not be correct in American, British, or Australian English.  The sun would rise "in" the East.  "From" could work as pointed out by some, but is not the typical phraseology.  The sun rising "to" the East does not make logical sense.  "To" the East would imply that the East is its end point. Technically it rises in the East and makes its way "to" the Western horizon where it sets.

    I think the meaning is misintended.

    In Australian English it would be;

    The Sun rises in the east and sets in the west.

    Here we use British English so same same in the U.K, Canada, India, Ireland, Pakistan, Malaysia, Singapore, New Zealand, Nigeria, South Africa, Caribbean, Namibia, Tanzania, etc. It is also correct in American and Canadian English.

    Most people say “The sun rises in the east.”

    Yes. It should read "The sun rises from the east" instead of the other way around.

    The rising of the sun in the east is what might be termed "apparent motion."  So no, the sentence is not incorrect.
