We report the first lattice QCD calculation of pion valence quark distribution with next-to-next-to-leading order perturbative matching correction, which is done using two fine lattices with spacings $a=0.04$ fm and $0.06$ fm and valence pion mass $m_\pi=300$ MeV, at boost momentum as large as $2.42$ GeV. As a crucial step to control the systematics, we renormalize the pion valence quasi distribution in the recently proposed hybrid scheme, which features a Wilson-line mass subtraction at large distances in coordinate space, and develop a procedure to match it to the $\overline{\rm MS}$ scheme. We demonstrate that the renormalization and the perturbative matching in Bjorken-$x$ space yield a reliable determination of the valence quark distribution for $x$ in range of 0.03 $\sim$ 0.80 with 5--20 % uncertainties.
