A Johnson counter is a modified ring counter, where the inverted output from the last flip flop is connected to the input to the first. The register cycles through a sequence of bit-patterns. The MOD of the Johnson counter is 2n if n flip-flops are used. The main advantage of the Johnson counter counter is that it only needs half the number of flip-flops compared to the standard ring counter for the same MOD.
It can be implemented using D-type flip-flops (or JK-type flip-flops).
