Hi there!

That someone is right, the JR Pass makes for a great deal if you do some long distance travel in Japan, for instance a return Tokyo - Osaka will quickly pay of. Since you only go one way with a visit to Fuji, I would not recommend going for the 7 day JR Pass.

For travel to Fuji: I would recommend going to Tokyo first and than make a day trip or nights stay to Fuji from there.
This because going from Osaka directly to Fuji can be pretty hard. To learn more about traveling to Fuji, read this very useful page at wikitravel.

Enjoy Japan!
