You're probably right in your identification of it - but it's also quite likely some politician got bribed a few years back and managed to get the goverment to pay hundreds of millions of yen to local construction firms to built some meaningless lump of concrete in the middle of pristine mountain countryside just for the hell of it...

What country could've spent more on tunneling than Japan? Still, when I go through the tunnel to Echigo Yuzawa on the shinkansen, I guess I'm grateful for it.
