We consider real hypersurfaces of compact Kähler manifolds and show that real hypersurfaces of Kähler manifolds induced by Morse functions have contact structures. As examples we consider preimages of regular values of Morse functions on complex projective spaces, and cosymplectic real hypersurfaces of the products of Kähler manifolds and torus.
