Re: Is is it still Aikido if you take away the Japanese clothes, etiquette and other things?

It's a cultural transmission, dude.
My point was - which culture? Any culture, as long as it's Japanese? Because if it's a specific culture - say, the culture of O-Sensei's personal dojo, then you ain't got it.

Even in Japan, the culture, etiquette and customs vary widely from dojo to dojo - which ones aren't practicing Aikido?
