Thanks, Pilot Frans and Shaun.

@Pilot Frans, I've noticed two bulbous bows only now. :)

This is the view of the barge itself:

It obviously took me some time to realize that the scene with the tug was interesting enough to post it here...

Dramatic shot.

Great shot Vlad,

The cargo is at least for two different ships.
I can recognise to bulbs.

Thanks, delvestudio! This is rather common sight in Japan's coastal traffic: tugs towing barges with "lego bricks" for many of their shipyards.
