Get the data from a REST API and store it in HDFS/HBase

I'm new to Big data. I learned that HDFS is for storing more of structured data and HBase is for storing unstructured data. I'm having a REST API(batch) where I need to get the data and load it into the data warehouse (HDFS/HBase). The data is in JSON format. So which one would be better to load the data into? HDFS or HBase? Also can you please direct me to some tutorial to do this. I came across this about Tutorial with Streaming Data. But I'm not sure if this will fit my use case. The size of the data is about 60,000 records.

It would be of great help if you can guide me to a particular resource/ technology to solve this issue.
