Dogenzaka Hill is a level resembling a giant oval. There is a main road that leads to Shibuya Terminal and the Garage at either end. The inner part of the map generally has the player descending all the time. When it is back to flat ground, there is a mall that the player skates through, followed by a winding half-pipe, and finally a small flight of stairs leading back out onto the main road.
The Avenue - The road that connects Dogenzaka Hill to the Garage and Shibuya Terminal
Statue Area - The area where the Statue of the Goddess is (or was during Chapters 1-3)
Shopping Center - A shop that must be skated through to complete a lap around Dogenzaka Hill
A statue called "the Goddess of the Streets" (ストリートの女神) near the bus terminal's entrance has been stolen from its pedestal, by culprits later revealed to be Poison Jam, who the player duels later in the sewers. Why they stole the statue is not elaborated on.
After all the graffiti spots are sprayed, the player engages a race with Beat, who joins the GGs upon loss.
When the player accesses the area again after they completed Chapter 5, they will come face-to-face with the now-brainwashed Doom Riders. The player must race with them again in the same track that the player experienced earlier with Beat.
Beat is unlocked by defeating him in a race around Dogenzaka Hill.
The Doom Riders can be unlocked by completing all the Test Runs in Dogenzaka Hill with a 'Jet' rating.
