When I visited using public transport the direct bus service wasn’t frequent so I took the train to a nearby village and then got a local bus.
The schedule of the bus from Tokyo station to Ibaraki airport can be found here:
I didn’t make it round to the towers as it was mid morning by the time I got there. Others I know who have been have said proceedings start early, usually with ground running of the QRA jets before 8am.
If your a member of the Scramble website, they have a members only guide to Hyakuri.
Finally, if you search for hotels near Ibaraki airport you will find some hotels in the villages near by.
