4) Shin Osaka Station to Kyoto
5) Kyoto to Mt Fuji

Hi there,

You can do most of your itinerary with the JR Pass and you'll have enough time to travel to Osaka if you arrive at 3 pm, though you'll arrive late in the evening.

Fuji may require additional tickets, depending on where you want to go. We have a detailed post about traveling to Fuji here. Additionally you may also require additional transport within cities.

The rest looks good to me!
