Beastly Battle of Wits is a brand new side quest in this version of the game for players to do. It starts with speaking to Nozuchi in Da’at Minato.

Where to Find Sangaku Beads in SMT V Vengeance

Essentially, the second riddle in the Beastly Battle of Wits refers to a specific location for the Sangaku Beads in SMT V Vengeance. That location is in the screenshot above. What you are looking for is a hill somewhere in Shiba with a set of Kodama and a view of Tokyo Tower.

The location you are looking for is the clearing just west of the Shiba Leyline. Head to this location west of the fast travel point, and you will see a shining object on the ground. Interact with it to pick up the Sangaku Beads. Return to Nozuchi for a third riddle, which results in a battle against it. Defeat Nozuhi to complete the side quest.
