Why did making ager made from seaweed prosper in Nagano Prefecture, which is an inland...?

The Suwa region has large differences temperatures. In addition, it is blessed with beautiful water and air and has little precipitation and dry climate because of it is located at the foot of Mt. Yatsugatake. Therefore, this environment is suitable for making ager. Long ago, it had been done as a second job during the off-season on the farm in winter.
